Friday I worked from home. While it's tempting to stay in pajamas, I like to wear something appropriate so I can answer the door, say yes to a friend who asks me last-minute to lunch, or step out to run errands. On this day, I knew after work I would be heading out with my husband (and Emerson!) to photograph a friend for an upcoming True Fashionista post.
I decided to wear comfortable clothes that look put together; this ruffle-trim cardigan arrived in my most recent Gwynnie Bee box. This is NOT a color I usually wear but I always love. Good use for Gwynnie Bee – try out a new color! I ended up loving this color so much I bought another sweater in the same shade. This sweater is pretty awesome – it's free of closures, so you can wear hanging open, belt it, or do as I did and cinch it with a brooch. I bought this pin at Ann Taylor a few years ago and love that brooches have come back en vogue so it can get more play!
This weekend was pretty crazy – we found out our hot water heater was slowly leaking so we had some major cleanup to do (and still do), and Sunday we helped my mom take down her 30-year old steel toolshed. But to make up for the weekend, tonight I am going with my friend to see Gossip at The 9:30 Club! Woot!
Love the sweater! I just signed up for Gywnnie Bee using Wardrobe Oxygen. I am anxiously waiting for my box! I was a little disappointed that the price online already includes the 50% off. I was confused when I went to sign up. I went ahead with it anyway. Looking forward to new outfits.

You’re the most glamorous mom I’ve ever seen!
Gorgeous pics! You dress much more beautifully than I when working from home. I’m not fit to print : >
You’re better than me, I don’t dress at all at home!

Sucks about your weekend. I know exactly how that goes. However, I love this outfit. You look great 🙂
Jean at Dross into Gold says
That is a delicious color, and sooo good with denim and leopard. I also work from home for the most part and try to dress up, at least a little!! Makes me happy. You look amazing.
You make working from home sound like, “stay home and pretend you’re working.”
If we do so in our jammies because we aren’t going anyplace except to the spare bedroom to log on then that’s the right “look.”
